What Is Integrative Medicine?
You may have heard about integrative medicine before, but may not entirely understand what it entails. Integrative medicine combines complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) with conventional medicine. Alternative medicine is a broad term that’s used to describe any means of healing or care that traditional or mainstream medicine doesn’t use or does not yet fully recognize as medicinal therapy. Complementary medicine usually utilizes non-invasive or minimally invasive methods to help patients deal with things like chronic pain, insomnia, emotional health, and more. While integrative medicine uses therapies and practices commonly found in alternative medicine, the two are separate fields of medicinal practice.
Integrative medicine acts as the bridge between CAM and conventional medicine, using common practices in both fields to help better benefit patients. Like alternative medicine, integrative medicine uses non-invasive or minimally invasive therapies to help improve patients’ lives. Integrative medicine also uses aspects of conventional medicine, such as optimized nutritional supplementation, body mapping, and more. Integrative medicine uses more natural means to deliver care, so harsh medications and invasive therapies and surgeries that can cause more harm to a patient’s body are replaced with more natural methods of healing.
Below are a few natural therapies integrative doctors commonly use to help their patients heal without the need of harmful chemicals or invasive surgery:
- Chiropractic medicine
- Holistic health assessments
- Magnetic pulse treatment
- Massage therapy
- Natural chelation therapy
- And more!
Here at the Comprehensive Health Center in Houston, we specialize in bringing high-quality integrative medicine to everyone. Contact Comprehensive Health to schedule your holistic health analysis today.

Our highly trained holistic doctors will make sure you fully understand your procedure before you undergo your therapy, helping you see all of the options you have as well as how the natural therapy will help you heal.

Natural Chelation Therapy
Chelation (Key-lay-shun) is a natural chemical process where a metal or mineral is bonded to another substance. This process has been around since life first began and is found in many ways around the world. When you take aspirin, antibiotics, or vitamin and mineral supplements, your body uses a chelation process in order to break down the substance and use the beneficial components in the medication. Hemoglobin, which is the red pigment in blood and the part that carries oxygen throughout your body, is a natural chelation of iron.
Chelation therapy has been used since the 1930s, which was an effective antidote for those suffering from lead poisoning. Chelation treatment uses a synthetic amino-acid called ethylene diamine tetraacetic acid (EDTA), which is administered intravenously. EDTA bonds with metals in your body and carries them away through your urine. Chelation therapy helps remove toxic metals, such as mercury and lead, and can help reduce free radical damage in your body. Chelation is only prescribed and administered by a licensed physician, as there are certain health risks that could arise. Several infusions are necessary as your body is cleansed of toxic metals over time.

Perfect for those suffering from ligament and joint damage or those who have chronic pain, Prolozone Therapy is a natural, integrative therapy used to help many people achieve a better quality of life. Prolozone uses a mixture of ozone, a colorless gas that occurs naturally all around the world, and collagen producing substances that are used by the body to help reconstruct damaged or weakened connective tissues, specifically around joints. A licensed integrative physician will prescribe and administer the Prolozone solution intravenously to the problem areas around your body.
Ozone helps increase both blood supply and flow, which helps get healing nutrients to damaged ligaments and areas of chronic pain faster. The cells then synthesize the added collagen, which help to repair the damaged ligament and adds elasticity to the damaged joint. Because Prolozone helps repair connective tissue that may have been damaged or lost, chronic pain can be treated and reversed thanks to this natural holistic therapy.
To see if Prolozone Therapy is right for you, contact the Comprehensive Health Center in Houston to schedule your appointment today.
Pulsed Magnetic Therapy
Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) Therapy pulses a magnetic field into your body, which helps create a truly unique healing effect. PEMF Therapy is one of the best natural therapies you can get to help your body become healthy again. Magnetic pulse therapy has been shown to improve circulation, relieve pain, reduce swelling and inflammation, and more. This magnetic pulse treatment is approved by the FDA and has been shown to help non-healing bone unions to heal. This natural treatment has been used for over 20 years all over the world and can be used to help with chronic pain brought on by injury as well as illness, like fibromyalgia and arthritis.
Completely safe and containing no side effects, PEMF Therapy is one of the best natural therapies you can get if you’re suffering from chronic pain. This non-invasive therapy is completely pain free, and you won’t even have to undress for the treatment. Some patients see improvements after their very first session, but for those suffering from serious chronic pain or illness, several sessions may be required.

All of our methods of assessment are natural methods our doctors use to analyze your overall health. These non-invasive and minimally invasive tests are administered by licensed medical professionals, all of which have PhDs and years of experience in their respective fields.

Autonomic Response Testing
Autonomic Response Testing (ART) is a natural and safe way to analyze the structural, physical, and nutritional needs of your body. Though you can’t use ART testing to diagnose diseases, the integrative doctors at Comprehensive Health use it to determine the root of a health issue. ART testing is also perfect to determine problems before they ever arise, helping doctors to find the potential problem early and fix it before it becomes a major issue. Most of the time, symptoms of health problems are treated while the real root of the problem goes unnoticed. With ART testing from Comprehensive Health, these underlying problems won’t go undetected, which allows doctors to fix the issue quickly.
Using ART testing, our integrative physicians probe the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) using biofeedback. This allows our doctors to find any potential ANS disturbances. If any are found, your doctor will then prescribe treatment for you in order to prevent a possible problem or to manage a potentially dangerous chronic illness. On average, ART testing is around 90 percent or better with correctly identifying underlying illnesses.
Contact the Comprehensive Health Center in Houston today to learn more about Autonomic Response Testing, and schedule an appointment to see if ART testing is right for you or your family member.
Are you looking for a safe, non-invasive way to check your body for cardiovascular disease or arrhythmia? CardioVision from Comprehensive Health is the perfect way to check your body for any potential cardiovascular issues that you won’t be able to spot through EKG or blood pressure testing. CardioVision checks the arterial stiffness index (ASI), or the elasticity/stiffness of your arteries. Atherosclerosis is the hardening of your arteries, which can lead to major health risks like hypertension, diabetes, and increased risk of heart attack.
It’s estimated that around 60 – 70 million Americans have atherosclerosis, and around 700,000 of those with the disease will die of a heart attack. Getting a CardioVision test from the Comprehensive Health Center in Houston will help you find these potential health risks early so that they can be corrected before they become major health issues. Non-invasive, rapid, and highly accurate, CardioVision is one of the best integrative health tests you can get to help determine your cardiovascular health.
